sample menus

Following are some of the 3- and 4-course menus I've created with my clients. Of course, I can tailor any menu you desire for your celebration to suit your tastes. Click here to download or view other menus.


"restaurant" menus

Ever tried to get a reservation for that especially exceptional restaurant? French Laundry? Chez Panisse? I offer you the experience of these great restaurants in the comfort of your home! This usually works best using a cookbook that the restaurant has published, however, I can most likely come up with a menu item, even if it's not available. The first menu is from the French Laundry, and the second one is what one of my clients' wanted, since they couldn't get a reservation at the restaurant. Click on the menus to download or view them.

I had the great fortune to have this amazing degustation!

"Grapes & Plates" menus

Fortune favors the foolish. I'm no exception living in the San Francisco Bay Area, where there's an abundance of great produce and other foodstuffs. This is also wine country! I create menus to compliment the courses with the appropriate wine selections, and I enjoy trying out vintages from some of the local boutique wineries. The last menu on this list is from a G&P I did with Row 11. Click here to download or view these menus.
